Dead Poet’s Society (1989)

Join improv comedian Krissy Lenz (The Neighborhood Comedy TheatreThe Cool Time Dice Hour), and filmmaker Nathan Blackwell (Voyage TrekkersThe Last Movie Ever Made), and special guest Megan Hughes Rini (The Last Movie Ever Made) take a magical journey back to Welton Academy circa 1959. It’s a prep school where free-thinking and self-expression are about as welcome as jeans and boomboxes.

Set the scene: Robin Williams stars as an offbeat teacher who inspires his students to shred the rules like the pages of the Pritchett Scale for Poetry!

Dude, Williams kills it in this flick! He’s all deep and serious, but then he drops some hilarious one-liners too. The whole movie is totally rad, man, talking about how to be yourself and not just follow the crowd. It’s got some parts that are still relevant today, but some parts are totally stuck in the ‘50s. And let me tell you, that love story is totally bitchin’! The acting by everyone is totally gnarly, dude!

We give this film high ratings with 8.5 perfect books of poetry and higher! Righteous!

This coming-of-age story is most triumphant with excellent writing and performances. Catch ya on the flip side!

It’s the podcast where a filmmaker (Nathan Blackwell of Squishy Studios) and a comedian (Krissy Lenz of Neighborhood Comedy Theatre) take a hilarious look at the 80s movies we think we love or might have missed with modern eyes and probably a significant haze of nostalgia.
